Recommendations for Linux distro for older 32bit computer

Last Modified: 2017-12-13
I have a windows XP that is running on  a 32 bit AMD Sempron 140  2.71 Ghz and 2.75 RAM and looking to convert to Ubuntu or some other linux distro so this can be re purposed.  I would like to have an easy to use desktop for non technical users.

There are a handful of "best lightweight" style articles that I have already read and am looking for personal experience.

Thank you.
